We only realized the restaurant was already shut down because of the fire when we got there. Opentable should not take reservations if it's not available. Thank you!

Wonderful service, staff was accommodating when we wanted to sit with another table as we had two separate parties without any issue. They made it a great experience and there are only good things I can say about this Guy Kaku location.

Happy hour and lunch are the best times to come. It's nice that they have lunch and HH on weekends, as well as half off drinks.

My friend and I took a long-overdue day off work for lunch bunching and day drinking. Gyu-Kaku offers several tasty lunch sets at an affordable price. We each ordered a three-item Create Your Own Lunch combo (2 BBQ items--$12.95 and 3 BBQ items--$16.95) with a mix of beef, pork, chicken. The chicken was OK, but the spicy pork, garlic shoyu ribeye and bistro hanger steak miso were our faves.

The Japanese BBQ format can easily accommodate large groups or a couple of friends. Great place for lunch!

Food was great, service was good (took a while for a server to initially come to our table though.) the booth seats were extremely uncomfortable. I’m a tall person (6’3).They felt cheaply made and minimal cushion.

Strongly recommend that you come with a crowd and meat eaters.
Food is average, at best. Service is very good.

My boyfriend and I frequently eat at the midtown locations but picked this one since it was closer to my sister's hotel downtown. Maybe it was just an awkward time right between the afternoon happy hour and dinner but service was lackluster compared to the other locations. The food was great as always, could just use a little more attentiveness to grill changes, plate needs, clearing empty dishes etc.

I had done a reservation for 8:30pm and when we got to our table there were to glasses of water already on the table that appeared to had been there for a while. One with no ice and the other with the ice already almost gone (from melting) when we asked the host why the glasses of water appeared that way she said they had set up the water 15-20 minutes before we got there. I don’t know about other customers, but I would have preferred the water be served to me when I got there or in front of me. Unless someone had made a special request before hand about wanting their drinks permade. Our chopsticks were also already out of their packaging. Which again makes me worried about how clean or sanitary this is.

On the bright side our waitress did save the whole experience for me as she did her best to be attentive despite how busy she was. So I really appreciate her. Otherwise that location as a whole needs to do a bit better. Their need to pre prepare was a bit too much for me and could have done with the prepoured water and unwrapped chopsticks.
